Looks like it actually snowed after all — and in some parts of the area, it's continuing to do so. This late season scattering of flakes is being called the Snowquester, and many bars and restaurants are hoping for some extra business, due to school and government closings. Eater will be updating this post throughout the day with fun snow-related specials and with those restaurants which haven't been able to get open today. Send any closures or specials to the tipline.
